As a child, I collected mica in Central Park, organizing it in shoe boxes according to configuration and “personality”. That was one of the beginnings of a lifetime intrigue and practice of gathering, collecting and organizing objects. I’m drawn to those from nature, along with the very man made; the common with the unusual. I take these objects out of context and try to redefine them; expand their boundaries. I am a sculptor who designs jewelry. I started when I was “in between” studios and after going to the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show for the first time. Now, people could actually wear these materials and their configurations.
